6. Badner House, 1952

Don Tosi designed this Ranch style house. He was the contractor for the Bruce Goff house on Edgelawn Drive, and was inspired by Goff to design as well as construct homes. This home features both vertical and horizontal cedar siding and corner casement windows. The low-pitched roof and opposing shed dormer also indicate the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright and his Prairie Style homes. Samuel and Mary Badner were the first owners. Samuel was the manager for Kleinerts, "Ready-to-Wear for Men, Women and Children."
